Former double World Motocross Champion and Rockstar Energy Suzuki rider Steve Ramon will race a Suzuki RM-Z450 at this weekend’s second round of the Belgian Masters of Motocross Championship at Kester.
The 33-year-old Belgian, who recently parted company with the UK-based Honda Buildbase team, will stand-in for Rockstar Energy Suzuki’s World MX1 riders Clement Desalle and Kevin Strijbos, who are in America to take part in the third round of the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship.
Said Ramon: “I’m happy with the opportunity to ride in Kester again. It wasn’t initially on my schedule, since I was normally doing the British Championships. But after parting ways with my previous team I’m grateful for the bike and support that Sylvain Geboers and Rockstar Energy Suzuki can give me for this round. It’s a classic on the Belgian Calendar with a great track, good crowd, fans and an unbelievable atmosphere. AMC Dworp – the organiser of the event – is also the club I’ve always been registered to, so I’m glad I can do this for them as well! “
